flare UdjinM6 crowning or anyone else who knows:

I'm trying a new VPS server (lower price, same specs as VULTR). I asked for Ubuntu 14.04 but got 14.04.1. When I transfer and try to activate dashd, it says "-bash: ./dashd: No such file or directory. The file is clearly there, and I can make it executable, even remove it, but when I try to run it, that's what happens.

Any ideas, or am I screwed with this provider?

Tao

Check if you use right bit version :) I mean if you have a machine with 32 bit do not start dashd 64 bit... :) it is only the one example I had in past with my vps :D but meaby it is not...check it twice ..

ldd ./dashd = not a dynamic executable

file ./dashd = ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.24, BuildID[sha1]=43e65a88642524c2c917e69b9d29ddff923b1e4e, stripped
Please try (as root) , I'm not sure if this will work :)
apt-get install libc6 libstdc++6 libgcc1

Actually dashd works on Ubuntu 14.04.1 installations without any additional packages, however instead of installing the libs you've mentioned I'd update to the most recent 14.04 version, which is Ubuntu 14.04.2:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
After that, a "cat /etc/issue" should show "Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS \n \l". (or use "lsb_release -a" to do basically the same task).
"uname -i" will show you whether you're on a 32 bit or 64 bit Ubuntu.

Depending on that output, (re-) download the corresponding archive from https://www.dashpay.io/downloads/ and try again.

Thanks for your help.

OK, tried that and it said that it was already installed. After that, I pretty much came to the conclusion that that VPS is fucked somehow, so I cancelled and got a box from another provider. I'm being somewhat of a guinea pig for lowendbox.

dashd started fine on that VPS, and I successfully (I think) started a masternode. Problem is, although everyone else sees it as a node, it doesn't see itself as a node. Weird! What could cause that? Help a dummy out! :D

TaoOfSatoshi Try this pls:
1) make sure your mnprivkey match on both remote and local
2) make sure remote is synced
3) if #1 and #2 is ok - stop remote node, remove peers.dat, start it again. Check if it started and if it's not run "masternode start(-many)" from local again.

Thanks! That worked. I guess I've found a new provider. Cheers from a relieved dummy!

Hey Tao,

Are you still using Websound? Have they been working well for you? All of my AWS free tier nodes expire this month and am looking for new hosting. That coupon code above still works :)

My luck so far with them has been mixed. Performance has been very poor over the last few days, finally culminating in a 14 hr downtime yesterday. To make it worse there was no notice and their website showed everything fine. I had other monitoring setup so I was notified when they went down. Can't beet the price but I'm going to diversify my providers after this week.
